When it comes to shootouts, the Senators know both ends of the spectrum.

They have the best goalie and the worst shooters.

When Craig Anderson gave up the deciding goal to Atlanta's Andrew Ladd Sunday, it marked the first time the Senators goalie had been beaten in 16 shootout attempts this season. That gives Anderson a .933 save percentage in shootouts — the top percentage of goalies who have faced at least five shootout attempts.

Brian Elliott, the Senators' No. 1 goalie before being traded to Colorado for Anderson, has a .611 save percentage — with seven goals against on 18 shots.

Meanwhile, the Senators have scored only three times on 22 attempts for a 13.6% success rate — well below the 29th worst in the league — Edmonton's 17.4%. Why are the Senators so horrible?

"Right now, we're missing a lot of guys," said coach Cory Clouston, referring to the fact shootout regulars Daniel Alfredsson (injured), Alex Kovalev (traded), Mike Fisher (traded) haven't been around. "I really don't know. Can't give you a specific answer on that."

The Senators have won 2-of-7 shootouts, thanks to Anderson.

"I think shootouts are a confidence thing, kinda," said Jason Spezza, who has one goal on five chances. "I've had years where I think I've been 5-for-6, and right now I'm on something like a 1-for-7 or 1-for-8 run. You lose a little confidence. You second guess yourself. It's just one of those things you've just got to go in and stick to your guns. Not worry too much about what you think the goalie is going to do."

Spezza said having Anderson behind them is going to help Senators shooters.
